Circa: 1970-1979
Manufacturer: Libbey Glass Company, Toledo, Ohio

These Libbey Accent line 9 ounce Rocks glasses were #374 in their 1970-1979 catalogs. The color is a smoky brown clear color they named tawny. The shape and the decoration were designed by one of the few female industrial designers. Her name was Freda Diamond (1905-1998) and she was the head designer at Libbey Glass Company from 1942-1979. She helped them pioneer inexpensive highly decorative tumblers, stemware and barware. She is responsible for the Accent, Impromptu, Ripple, Tempo, Stardust lines and many more. Life magazine named her "Designer for Everybody" in 1954. The decorative motif on this line was called Brown Camelia. It was produced for one year only in 1973. I like the very graphic pop art flower power feel of the design. Here is how it was advertised when it was introduced in the 1970 Pacesetter Catalog: "Here's stemware for today ... Stemware with style that's just right for the informal dining and entertaining of America's lifestyle in the 70s." This Accent line won an award in the 1970 National Housewares Manufacturers Design Competition. On 1972 it was advertised as "Bold, formal, casual, Old World look or New. Over the 9 years it was available in these colors: crystal (9 years), Tawny (9 years), Olive (6 years), Dusky Blue (2 years) and Gold (2 years). A modern classic. indeed.
